Weekend Cookbook Challenge (Challenge 17, Cornmeal)

Traci and I are going to try and do this "Weekend Cookbook Challenge", the idea is to "crack open" a cookbook you've never opened before or haven't used in awhile and make a recipe from it that pertains to the "theme" of the challenge. This is "Challenge 17" and the theme is "Cornmeal". So we opened Emeril's cookbook, New New Orleans Cooking and made Spicy Beef Empanadas with fire sauce and cilantro cream, the recipe is on Emeril's website here. We highly recommend keeping the dough for the Empanandas as cold as possible. If you don't, they will crack and make handling them a real pain. Of course we had to use the Big Green Egg to bake them! We used the place setter with legs down and placed our pizza stone on it. Got the egg fired up to 500 degrees and baked them for about 30 minutes. We will more than likely do this recipe again.
